This article examines the development of “Queer Theology” as a theological response to "Queer Theory." Queer theory focuses on differences among heterosexuals/homosexuals and questions the essentialist idea of sexual identity. It argues against the normativity of heterosexuality and aims to transcend the dualistic thinking of heterosexuality and homosexuality. Thus, queer theology incorporates such features of queer theory into theology. In summary, it is theology practiced by queer Christians, opposing theological heteronormativity and exploring queer things in Christianity. For the debate on homosexuality in Christianity, in a sense, queer theology seems to weaken lesbian/gay liberation based on its view of stable human sexuality owing to Creation by its constructionist position or to result in sexual lawlessness because of its position outside the norm. On the other hand, it warns of idolatry by demonstrating that normalization is always done by humans, reveals that heteronormativity leads to violence such as discrimination or oppression and consequently seems to encourage a more ethical view as a whole.

The question this paper asks is whether theology can still claim universality. With the rise of multivalent postmodern theologies and of politically-correct mandates in public space, theology as a discipline ceases to make universal claims. However, a series of recent debates between two radically different thinkers brings a renewed philosophico-theological interest in the universal claim of Christianity. The paper focuses on the debate between Hegelian-Lacanian philosopher Slavoj Žižek and Anglican theologian John Milbank in their attempt to articulate the universal claim of Christianity vis-à-vis the domianant global political economy. The first section discusses the ontological and genealogical bases of their understanding of Christian universality. The fundamentally diverse ontologies of void (Žižek) and of peace (Milbank) are situated in the history of theology. The second section examines the role that the representation of Christ plays in Žižek and Milbank's claim of theological universality in relation to the concept of freedom.
